Born in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., Ashleigh spent her early childhood in Florida, Texas, and small-town Ohio. After graduating from high school in Greensboro, N.C., she attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, receiving an A.B. in Political Science with an Afro-American Studies minor. During college she served as Multi-Ethnicity Team Leader on the Coordinating Team of UNC’s chapter of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship (IVCF), and InterVarsity still holds a warm-fuzzy place in her heart. Ashleigh’s currently finishing up an MA in Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary. In her spare time she reads non-fiction, organizes social gatherings, plays German board games, listens to energetic and soulful music, and eats lots of Thai food with her husband, Jeremiah.
